Magazine Capacity

I know in the state of Maryland one is not permitted to sell, buy, transfer, or receive any weapon or magazine with a capacity exceeding 20 rounds (out side of .22lr tube magazines). However, possession of these magazines is not prohibited.

So my question is, if you have them, can you use them? Or is just the "holding onto them" a better idea.

How about if I take 2 of my Mac 10 30 round mags and cut them apart to join them into a 50 rounder. Is this manufacturing a HC mag? They were already HC's to start with.

If you did this, then I am sure it either cannot be done while within the state, or if you made a fixed magaizine to the Mac 10, then it should be legal.

An idea of what a fixed mag is, it could be argued anything like the SKS fixed mag is an example of what qualifies where it takes some dissasembly or a tool to remove the mag.

You'd never be able to load a fixed mag in a Mac. I could take a trip to a buddy's house in Pa since it's only a few minutes from the house. His tig welder would do a better job than my mig anyway.

I remember people talking about a way around the CA or the fed AW high cap ban with AR15 pistols, they would weld the mag to the lower and the way they would reload was to disconnect the upper on the back, tip it up and then feed the mag with strippers or something like that.
I am not totally sure, but I think the MAC 10 can work similarly. Also, it might be possible to remove the floorplate, the spring, the follower and leave the magazine body attached and load from the bottom while upside down and then reassemble if my theory is correct.

Of course this intellectual excercise is pointless when you can do this.....

I would think that would be considered manufacturing being that you are using 2 parts to make a finished product.

Then why did my XD 45 come with 2 13 rd mags that I got 2 months ago? I got it at Hendershot's.

So wait. I can go to PA and purchase a 33 round magazine for the Glock 17, and use it here in Maryland. Or perhaps I bought a Beta or C mag for the AR-15, and I can use it here. That just doesn't sound legal. Is everyone sure this is okay with LEO and local ranges?

BTW the regulation for 10 round limit for handguns expired. 20 round limit is the current mandate.
